Over the last decades renewable energy technologies have matured substantially and have shown strong growth rates all over the world. But in many places, the development and diffusion of renewables have been characterized by cycles of hype and disillusionment. In this study, I investigate the hype cycle that was associated with biogas technology in Austria. Based on the analysis of expert interviews, newspaper articles and policy documents, I describe the dynamics that characterized this hype cycle and relate them to the institutional processes that have underline the emergence of the Austrian biogas sector.
